Tired Of Calling Congress? Call Montana! Let’s Elect A Congress that will #ProtectOurCare

DFA_Dialer_Quist

Democracy for America is enlisting volunteers to call Montana voters and encourage them to vote for a candidate who will #ProtectOurCare, Rob Quist!

Voters in Montana are fired up and ready to throw Republicans out of office. And they love Rob Quist.

Check out the great reports we’ve gotten back this week from DFA members who have been making calls for Rob on DFA Dialer:

“I do have to say my experience today with Montana voters was delightful and I look forward to making more calls. People want to engage in conversation and talk about the issues. Listening to people’s concerns helped me to learn more about why Rob Quist is so right for this state.”

“I’ve been making these calls since at least the Gore/Bush election, and I have to tell you, talking to people in Montana is different. I’ve never had so much fun!”

Rob is a true progressive populist — he supports Medicare for All, he’s pro-choice, and he opposes Citizens United. And he is running an incredible campaign right now. He has been holding listening sessions and rallies in counties all over Montana, and his message is clearly resonating.

Rob’s opponent is one of the Republicans’ weakest recruits — a New Jersey tech billionaire and perennial failed candidate who lost in November to a Democratic governor even as Trump won the state. So we know that this race is winnable.

DFA members are having a real impact this special election: Together, we made more than 13,000 calls for Rob Quist on DFA Dialer last weekend alone. Can you hop on DFA Dialer this weekend to help set the stage for a big win in Montana?

Yes — I’ll sign up to make DFA Dialer calls for Rob Quist and help a progressive populist pick off this GOP House seat.

Republicans are getting EXTREMELY nervous this race. Late last week, the Congressional Leadership Fund — a super PAC aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan — announced a massive $800,000 ad buy to defeat Quist. And that’s on top of the $1.2 million the National Republican Congressional Committee plans to spend in Montana between now and Election Day.

It’s no surprise that deep-pocketed GOP donors are trying to get ahead of the curve on this race, after being taken by surprise by the incredible wave of Democratic grassroots momentum in Kansas and Georgia. They’re not waiting until the last minute — they want to overwhelm Quist’s campaign with a flood of cash and false tv ads now.

But there’s one thing they’re not counting on: The energy, excitement and passion of DFA members who are fighting every day to replace Trump’s Republican allies with bold progressive populists. Can you sign up for a DFA Dialer shift this weekend to help Rob Quist win?

Yes — I’ll sign up to make DFA Dialer calls to help progressive populist Rob Quist win his House special election in Montana.

Trumpcare. Good Enough For You, But Not For Congress #ProtectOurCare

Trump has been having a hissy fit for the past two weeks over the fact that Trumpcare didn’t get a vote on the House floor. To that end, he has demanded they continue to revisit their original proposals until they gut healthcare enough to satisfy the Billionaire Boyz and the 30 percent of Americans who…

Trump must not be allowed to use millions of people’s health insurance as a bargaining chip to fund his stupid wall #ProtectOurCare

Don’t hold the ACA hostage: The ACA offsets the costs that insurance companies incur insuring low-income enrollees. Trump is threatening to withhold these payments unless Congress passes a budget that funds his border wall with Mexico. Holding the health insurance of millions of Americans hostage is not an acceptable way to fund this wall, or anything […]
